  • Pennsylvania 153 UPDATE

    The State of Pennsylvania has passed a law requiring mandatory background screenings for volunteers and employees every five years. While there are still further details regarding the clearances that have not yet been finalized, Southeastern Security Consultants Incorporated (SSCI, our screening company) has been working with us to further understand and help the transition to full required compliance.

    The background screening that is conducted and required by USA Volleyball is considerably more comprehensive than the Pennsylvania State screening but we are still subject to submit to this additional screenings and expense. These are the new additional requirements:

    • • Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances (CY113)
    • • Pennsylvania Criminal Record Checks (SP4-164)
    • • Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Criminal
      Background Checks [fingerprinting]

    KRVA has determined that the company or agency who hires/employs/contracts with an adult who is in a supervisory position with children, must see that the persons affected must comply with the Pennsylvania State Law.
